Scent x Two!

Look at the lovely smelling bar of hand made soap that arrived in the mail last week from Yvonne! It's lavender and eucalyptus scent and it smells absolutely divine. Thank you SO much Yvonne!!

From the sublime, to the earthy.....
I couldn't resist taking the above picture!

This is Jack's crop of garlic all ready to dry and store for winter. He certainly had a bumper crop this year! No, we don't eat ALL of it ourselves...we share with our sons and a couple of friends who also love garlic. This is powerful stuff...each clove is huge and extremely strongly flavoured so a little goes a long way.

As I said, scent, times two!

Ooooooooooo! I'm jealous - of the soap (I love scented soaps) and the garlic (I eats it all the time). Lucky you, MA.
